I heard that conversation in Italian when it came out in our country. Surreal, indeed.

I wonder if more truth was shed on this.

Seriously if this is true, this would probably go down as one of the stupidest things one man has ever done in the history of time. Think about it.
/this. Jesus Christ, how can you let people see other people who are on the coast from a so far ship? But something doesn't add up: maybe there were some clondestines on the ship, Schettino gave the alarm too late (50' later). A version provided by Schettino says that they're supposed to get closer to the coast due to religious celebrations in some cities and this was planned by the same company... The same italian shit. As usual, unfortunately. What do you Canadians know about it?

You here alot but the bottom line is Schettino didn't listen to the coast guard. When your in those situations you don't tip toe around the orders you follow them directly.

a captain who run away by a taxi. just this should suggest what kind of "man" he is. if you decide to be a captain you even must follow the rules and be conscious of what could ever happen.
